For world photography day, I wanted to reshare a picture I took earlier this year. This is one of my most favorite photos I've taken so far. Not just for the colours but for the memories & feelings it brings me too. Ucluelet/Tofino is a place where I fell in love with nature. It's a place that calms and recenters me. It's also a place where I feel love because I had my honeymoon here. I love capturing images to provide me these memories & feelings and to share the beauty that surrounds us 💙
Hangin' onto the last few hours of the weekend like... 📷: @seattleaquarium (Psst – our Seattle terminal is less than 20 minutes on foot from the Seattle Aquarium. Stroll on down to visit these furry fellas firsthand!)

The boys got their heads in the game and went to work this weekend. @shute25 put on his shirt and tie and stepped into the boardroom and got the win.
I’ll tell you a secret....
The universe doesn’t wait for you to be ready. For the perfect moment, or the right opportunity. The universe may nudge you in the right direction, but it’s up to you to notice and take action.
So just go.
Do the things you’ve always wanted to do.
Create the art you’ve always wanted to create.
Tell the person you’ve always loved, you love them.
Because I will tell you another little secret
There is no better time than the now.
We finally made it on the last day to check out the beautiful sand sculptures at the @parksvillebeachfest 🐚 We are enjoying the last days of summer thoroughly, but dare I say we are also forward to pumpkin everything soon 🍂🙊
It's a couch day today 😷 🤒....so I'm going through recent photos on my phone and doing a bit of photo dumping onto IG 😏. This is from when I had some little people around to enhance my photos. My niece the animal whisperer and dog trainer with S-Man always at her side.

I haven’t edited them yet, so no Gabriola photos, but here’s a B.C. ferry shot from a few years ago to represent my trip.
Off up-Island I went and two ferries later was on Gabriola (only requires one ferry from our big island to their little one, but there’s a mountain in between and my nerves suggest taking the ferry and avoiding the ‘Hat is a very good idea). .
It was lovely to see my son (who’s working there)!! Annoyingly I was completely knackered and kind of stupefied. Had a migraine the day before then one again this morning (took Triptans, but it takes it out of you).
Despite this we got to see tons of the island! He is the host with the most! It’s very different from Salt Spring Island (where we go a fair deal) - that’s my main Gulf Islands experience so I was surprised at the different look and vibe. SSI was settled by white and black immigrants for farming in 1859 (formerly occupied, at least seasonally, by Salishan people who retain land there by Fulford), whereas Gabriola came later to the game and the land is still not as heavily cultivated as its southerly neighbour. .
Visually Gabriola naturally mirrors the adjacent big island in some regards, and is quite heavily forested. There are petroglyphs and amazing sandstone beaches that look quite lunar. The beaches are really easy to access - so if you’re ever on Gabriola and are knackered, fear not, park your car, walk a few week ... glorious beach.
We also went to the farmer’s market (lots of great artists and bakers), and the Common. Lots of stuff! It’s my son’s home away from home so it was really special to share that with him. Feeling sleepy again. Just a final note that it was sooooo nice to feel cool again. We’re hearing rumours of rain in a week or so. Let’s hope so! Quench the earth, clean out skies, and put out the damn fires. #sharethecoast#gulfislands#gulfislandsunset#pnwisthebest#bcisbeautiful#hellobc
A Summer Moment.
Sometimes a photo captures more than what the lens sees. Picture feeling exhausted but exhilarated from a full day of kiting, sitting on beach logs, clustered with family and friends, sea salt drying on your skin and hair, drinks and snack food in hand, sharing stories of the day's successes, and watching the last kiteboarders quietly sweep back and forth in the molten water as the sun sets. Then back to the campsite for a warm dinner on a camp stove ....because after all that you are ravenous! That is what this picture is all about. ☺️
(Thanks to you girls @elevationkiteboarding that I can finally now partake in the kiting success stories too!! 😍)
